Kia designed the Soul to stand out and make a mark, and it stands alone in its charismatic design and eccentric personality. It is ideal for those who like standing out in a crowd, and this hatchback is all about its crowd-pleasing looks.

What's New in 2023?

You may notice several significant updates to the Kia Soul for the 2023 model year. It has an updated design, with new Daytime Running Lamps, revamped fog lights, and 17- to 18-inch alloy wheels. The exterior boasts two new two-tone paint finishes. The popular Kia SUV removed the 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-four from the powertrain lineup, leaving the 2.0-liter inline-four to power your commutes around Oceanside, CA. The Kia Soul also eliminated Turbo and X-Line trim levels and folded some of those models' features into the other trims and optional packages.

Soul Performance

The Kia Soul is straightforward and gets right to the point with its performance attributes. Its single 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine takes the guesswork out of which engine you should opt for in the hatchback. The Soul is great to whip around Carlsbad, CA and take out on the town because it produces up to 147 horsepower. Its pairing with a modern continuously variable transmission (CVT) allows it to shift seamlessly as you gain speed driving down the highway. The Kia Soul's front-wheel drive is also a standard inclusion for this model. In most models, you'll get an EPA-estimated 28 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, and 30 mpg combined.

Unique Design

Every component of the 2023 Kia Soul simply adds to its unique aesthetic. It features a square body with curved edges, and this hatchback already portrays the image of a futuristic vehicle. When you add its low-setting grille and two-tone color scheme, it just gets that much better. In fact, the front fascia sports a new grille design for 2023, complete with a signature Kia emblem. Its bold and alluring colors are what really draw attention, though. If you let its personality shine through, you can easily imagine all the fun you can have in the Kia Soul.

Futuristic Technology

You wouldn't want a good-looking ride that isn't entertaining, so the 2023 Kia Soul makes sure to implement modern technology attributes throughout its cabin. Ambient lighting illuminates the Soul's cabin, while a smartphone charging pad makes staying connected seamless. A head-up display helps you always stay in control of your ride in the Soul with real-time data readings, too. Other comfort-driven technology features available to equip the new Kia Soul include push-button start, keyless entry, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel.

Modern Safety Amenities

On the base model of the Kia Soul, you'll find some standard safety amenities, but these options expand once you get past the S trim. Standard tech features that are available across all models of the Soul include forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist. Other features that are available as upgrades include blind-spot monitoring and automatic high-beam headlights. As you go up in trim options, the availability of advanced safety features becomes more abundant, as well.
